Dip It In Chocolate

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #70 for this card. I had fun with it! I just love MFT Who's That Girl, and I love to paper piece. I came up with this creation using that combination.
I am trying to use up some old DSP. I chose Berry Bliss because it feels chocolate-y to me. I used some gold metallic paper I had in my Creative Memories paper stash for the box. I was thinking Godiva... I colored the chocolates with Copics and then I put a dot of white Liquid Applique on top of each chocolate and puffed them up with my heat gun to make it look like icing or marshmallow. I then added a dot of red on each puff with a Copic marker to make it look like a cherry. Fun! Thanks for stopping by today. It is a beautiful day here in Central NJ...
Here are the ingredients:
Stamps ~ MFT Who's That Chocoholic and Clearly Sentimental About Chocolate (Link unavailable at time of this posting).

Time For Cake!

This is my take on this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch, MFTWSC040710. I really enjoyed this one. I need a birthday card for my niece, and this is perfect for her.

I paper pieced this wonderful WTG image from MFT's "Lovin From The Oven" set (link to image not available at the time of this posting) with Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry DP, then I colored the skin and the spoon with Copics. I colored the inside of the bowl with copics to give the illusion of "batter" and to give it a little dimension, then I stamped some chocolate chips inside the bowl. I also added some dots to the outside of the bowl with a Copic marker to give it some texture. I used MFT's "Make The Date" for the words "Time" & "For", and "Lovin from the Oven" for the word "Cake".
The full list of ingredients are:
Stamps ~ MFT Lovin From the Oven and Make the Date.
Ink ~ Soft Suede, Memento Tuxedo Black.
Paper ~ Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Neenah Solar White.
Accessories ~ Dimensionals, Nestabilities, Dusty Durango 1/2" Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon, Copics, 1 1/2" Aluminum White Circle Metal Edge Tag, Linen Thread.
Thanks for stopping in...

Easter Wishes

I started this card before I left with my family for vacation to Southern California just before Easter. I planned to use Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #67 for the layout, but I only got as far as the focal point before I left.
Yesterday I finished the card with inspiration from the OCC, as this week's challenge is to incorporate a bow on your card/project. Easter Was a week ago, I know, but I will save this for next year. I love the colors and I love the egg wreath from Verve's Easter Joy set. Here are the ingredients for my card:
Stamps ~ Verve's Easter Joy, SU All Holidays.
Paper ~ Cameo Coral, Elegant Eggplant, Tea Party DSP, Neenah Solar White.
Ink ~ Memento Tuxedo Black, Cameo Coral, Elegant Eggplant.
Accessories ~ Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Pink Pirouette 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon, Elegant Eggplant 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, SU Border Punch, Sticky Strip, Hero Arts self adhesive crystals.
Thanks for stopping by today!
